    Departmental Chairman

    Mr. D. Chisunga

    Department of Forensic Accounting and Auditing

    The Department is ceased with the development, incubation, transfer and commercialization of forensic accounting and auditing technologies. This is achieved through research and teaching.

    Brief synopsis of Forensic Accounting and Auditing field

    Forensic Accounting is a specialized area which integrate and fuse tools with accounting/auditing/legal expertise which would culminate in a deliverable for, used in or appropriate to civil or criminal courts of law, in internal or institutional disciplinary hearings and for a, regulatory and public discussions relating to the different evidential, dispute and litigation situations.

    Instead of to understand if the accounts or systems comply to set standards or specifications, forensic accounting and auditing is investigative. Forensic Accountants/Auditors are trained and skilled-up to see beyond the financial and accounting records and to deal with forensic issues cutting across numerous evidential settings, e.g. criminal and civil cases, business transactional issues (this is inclusive of highly sophisticated cybercrimes), bankruptcies.

    Whilst forensic auditing may buttress from, is related to or uses similar base accounting principles in one way or the other, there are vast differences between Forensic Accounting/Auditing and other forms of Accounting/Audit e.g. , Financial Statements/Traditional Accounting/ Audit, Internal Audit, IT Audit. Rather, forensic audit concocts all these skills with technological, organizational, business, environmental aspects, culminating in a forensics expertise that transcends disciplines, industries and sectors.

This is available on a full time basis but in the very near future, the Department intends to launch the degree on a Block Release basis.
